No Man's Sky, the controversial space exploration title from Hello Games, is headed to Xbox One this year. But that's not all: Hello Games is set to deliver a major new update called "Next," which the developer describes as its "biggest update so far," on all platforms.
On Xbox One, No Man's Sky will be enhanced for Xbox One X, including support for HDR and 4K. The game will ship with all three of the game's previous updates. From Hello Games:
No Man's Sky on Xbox One is huge. It includes the initial ambitious release, and all three major updates which changed so much: Foundation brought base building, freighter ownerships and survival game mode; Pathfinder introduced vehicles, online base sharing, and permadeath; Atlas Rises added 30 hours of story, a new procedural mission system and a visual overhaul.
As for the "Next" update, Hello Games is staying mum on exactly what's included. However, the developer describes it as the "next step on a longer journey" for it and the No Man's Sky community.
No Man's Sky originally launched in 2016 for PC and as a console-exclusive on PlayStation 4. The game received quite a bit of hype ahead of its launch, which ultimately led to resounding disappointment as players and critics found that the game didn't quite live up to what was promised. Since then, Hello Games has fleshed out the game with three major updates, and it stands to add to that with the upcoming "Next" update.
There's no exact release date just yet, but No Man's Sky for Xbox One will be distributed by 505 Games for its release this year.
